Holmsund Ikea Review

What you have here is a sofa bed. The Holmsund sofa is basically a sofa that quickly and easily transforms into a spacious bed. The best part is that you can turn the living room into a bedroom in just a few minutes. So if you ever have unexpected guests, you don’t have to worry about giving up your bed or having to start from scratch to find them a place to sleep. 

Holmsund Ikea

The sofa comes with storage space under the seat which is very easy to access and has room for bedding, pillows, and a good selection of records, books, or even movies. The cover is made of extra durable polyester with a dense texture. It’s quite comfortable on your skin so don’t worry yourself too much about all that. 

So you will find the storage space under the chaise. The lid can stay open on its own so you can safely and easily take things in and out without having to worry about it snapping on your poor fingers.  The best thing about the Holmsund is that it has loose back cushions. 

You can even angle the loose back cushions any way you like, and adapt the seat depth and back support to suit your needs. The chaise which is the second-best thing comes with the best solution.

You can place the chaise section to the left or right of the sofa, and switch whenever you like. So literally you can explore that creative kind of yours. It comes with 5 back cushions all for your comfort. 

Pros

  • It is a very comfortable sofa
  • It comes with loose back cushions which you can easily adjust to suit your needs
  • It can easily convert to a bed

Cons

  • As it is a sofa bed, it requires more space and allowance

Aesthetics

This sofa is generally an updated sofa bed that comes with extra throw pillows, wedged armrests and a higher price tag. It is almost like the Ikea Friheten and just like the Friheten sofa-bed, the Holmsund comes in two different configurations. So you will find it as a 3 seater sleeper sofa or as a sectional sofa-bed with a chaise of course. 

Each configuration comes with hidden storage space as well. So you will find that for the 3 seater, the storage will be located underneath the seats. As for the sectional sleeper, true storage will be located underneath the chaise. What’s mostly aesthetic about this sofa besides its cushions and classic manner is the chaise.  Fact that you can place it on either left or right of the sofa, and switch it anytime just makes it worthwhile. 

Sizes

Like any other series, you find it in different shapes and sizes. With Holmsund you can find that whether You are looking at the three-seater or the sectional you will find that the sofas are not humongous at all. In fact, they all come at a reasonable size so that they can fit with any room size and room shape. 

Here we have a three-seat sectional that comes at the following measurements; Height including back cushions: 37 3/4 “, Backrest height: 26 “, Depth chaise: 59 1/2 “, Width: 90 1/2 “, Depth: 35 3/8 “, Seat depth, chaise lounge: 47 1/4 “, Seat depth: 23 5/8 “, Seat height: 17 3/8 “, Bed width: 55 1/8 “, Bed length: 80 3/8 “

Feel

So generally this sofa’s legs are quite short, giving the Holmsund sofa the impression of sitting on the floor itself. Which is unlike the Friheten sofa bed, which clearly shows off its legs proudly. The Holmsund is really deep. 

With throw pillows for a backrest, you could literally make a nest out of the sofa and so if you are very tall you will find this sofa to be very comfortable. The armrests were well-placed and comfortable, the again they are quite lean do sitting on them may be a big risk to you and the sofa. 

When it comes to comfort the Holmsund is rather a specialised taste. The padding is firm, without being hard. If you like sitting on your sofa and not on your sofa, this is probably not for you. The bed is a double or full size, not quite a queen-size bed. So I would advise you appropriately for your sheets if you use them.

Durability

When it comes to durability, Ikea is always ahead of you. Holmsund comes with a 10-year warranty for all its sofas. The covers are made to last at least 50 000 cycles while normal covers usually work for at least 15 000 cycles. 

The frame for the whole sofa is Made from Solid Wood, Plywood, Fiberboard, Particleboard, Polyurethane foam 1.2 lb/cu.ft., Non-woven polypropylene, Polyester wadding” and some steel. Different fabrics are made with different materials including polyester, polyester, cotton, and linen blend as well as a polyester cotton blend. 

The back cushions are made of polyester fiber balls. The seat cushions are constructed with high-resilience polyurethane foam. All this leads to the fact that if you sit on the sofa when you stand up it will retain its shape. 

Price

Going for $799, I would like to say that the sofa is a bit pricey, then again I am someone who values content and quality and I have to say this sofa has certainly managed to convince me that it should actually be worth so much more. Considering that it is a sofa bed. In which case you will be getting a sofa and a bed for the price of either one of the two in some cases. So no, the price suits it perfectly well. 

Verdict

When it comes to the Holmsund sofa, I think what matters the most is that your needs are met and you are comfortable with the sofa. I would highly recommend this sofa to anyone who would want a luxurious feel of comfort in their home. If you are to prepare a guest bedroom that offers a flare of elegance then this is truly the way to go. 

However, it isn’t a state of emergency nor is it a must. The price does come a bit too high and if it isn’t suitable for your budget then you should not stress yourself one bit.

If this isn’t quite what you are after, make sure you check out our review of the Simple Armless Chaise.

Aesthetics

Well just by looking at this beautiful sofa you can tell that it will add an amazing flare to your home. It comes with a cornered shape that makes it rather fit into the classic modern style.

However, due to its small size, you will find that it will also work in a minimalist zone and because of its colors grey and bright blue, it would work well in a contemporary setting as well. 

Besides the attractive design, this sofa also has a low price and is very good from an environmental perspective. It can be packaged so smartly that it could be taken home on a bus and be easy to assemble, robust, and easy to keep clean.

With this sofa in your home you are guaranteed and a very humble and modest setting. The result is a sofa that exudes honesty and more of what you see is what you get. 

Sizes

As I already stated the sofa is a small scale sofa. Perfect for limited spaces but it is also perfect if you are looking to add a humble piece to your large home. It doesn’t have to always be the living room but any bedroom or foyer could work with this sofa as well. 

It comes at the following measurements Width: 68 1/2 “, Depth: 29 7/8 “, Height: 27 1/2 “, Height under furniture: 8 1/4 “, Armrest height: 27 1/2 “, Seat width: 64 5/8 “, Seat depth: 21 1/4 “, Seat height: 15 3/8 “, Armrest width: 1 5/8 “. From this, you can obviously tell that it is best suited for small spaces or houses that are still trying to manage comfort even in limited spaces. 

Feel

The sofa is generally small but rather very comfortable. Made from 100 % polypropylene as the supporting fabric with the armrest frame as well as the top rail back and front rail being steel epoxy/polyester powder coating. The sofa feels soft, sturdy, and strong. 

The footing is polypropylene. Back and seat filling polyurethane foam 1.5 lb/cu.ft. If you are worried about your skin, rest assured this sofa will bring a warm soft caress as you sit because the cover is polyester wadding and non-woven polyester fabric. 

Durability

So we have already stated that this sofa is durable. At the same time, it is easy to keep clean as its cover is removable and can be machine washed. It’s very easy to bring home if you choose to carry it on your own. The packaging is literally just over one and a half meters in height and weighs 50 lbs. 

Coming to you with a 10-year limited warranty should really tell you more about this sofa. The cover has the ability to resist abrasion and has been tested to handle 40,000 cycles. 15,000 cycles or more is suitable for furniture used every day at home. Over 30,000 cycles mean a good ability to resist abrasion. It also has a lightfastness level of 5-6 out of 8 which means that you have a long way to go before it starts to lose color. 

Price

Coming to you at a price of $149, I think this sofa should have actually cost more. Size isn’t all and clearly this sofa has managed to prove that quite well. It is not only comfortable but it is also durable and very much aesthetic. To anyone who gets this sofa, they can never regret such a purchase. So yeah, the pricing is quite perfect at such an affordable price you will be getting this amazing small scale sofa. 

Verdict

I highly recommend you to get this sofa especially if you are living in a limited spaced area and you are generally on a tight budget. The sofa is very much affordable and will probably offer you better comfort and service as compared to other sofas out there. 

At the same time if you are living in a big house and you need an extra piece of furniture I would highly recommend this sofa because not only is it pleasing to look at, you will also feel an amazing rush of comfort when you sit on it be it in the living room, foyer or even your bedroom.

Ikea Stockholm Sofa Review

So let’s talk about classic sofas, literally, this sofa will make you feel less of a human. The way it stands and the way it stands is almost as if it’s challenging your ability to stand tall and proud. 

Ikea Stockholm Sofa

Dressed in soft velvet this sofa comes extra deep and wonderfully spacious. It is the perfect sofa for families because if it’s the spacious attribute. At the same time if you just want to add a tone of class to your home then this sofa is exactly what you need. The look, the accent, and even the style says it all about this sofa. Disappointment is far from reach with this sofa. 

The velvet touch is part of the deep expensive look and is all you need for this sofa to make your home into a lavish castle. It also has a lot of loose cushions that give comfort and support, for however you prefer either to sit or lie down. This is the sofa to long for and enjoy for years.

It comes with a sandbacka cover that is made of velvet which, through a traditional weaving technique, gives the fabric a warm, deep color and a rich surface with a dense pile and light, reflective shine.

You will find that the seat and back cushions provide comfortable support for your body and easily regain their shape because they’re filled with high resilience foam and polyester fibers. 

Pros 

  • Comes with reversible cushions
  • Is very easy to clean and maintain
  • Has a beautiful classic look that will style up your home

Cons

  • Color may start to fade from the cushions
  • Is not waterproof or stain resistant 

https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/stockholm-2017-sofa-sandbacka-dark-blue-10344592/

Aesthetics

Coming to you in two colors; the dark blue and the light grey, this sofa has definitely won a spot in my heart. The velvet reflects light in a characteristic way which may make the color appear as if it changes. Small fibers may appear on the velvet. 

It happens naturally and they disappear over time and can also be removed with a lint roller. You can even turn the back cushions so they wear evenly and last longer, as they’re reversible and have the same fabric on both sides. 

What is so inspirational about this sofa is the different ways you can use the sofa and the places it can be put. The generous size with all the pillows and the big seat cushions make it easy to adapt the sofa as needed.

So get this sofa, change your home and be able and ready to lie down, sit down and put up your legs, sit alone or with others, eat, sit with the computer, or just rest. It’s all up to you. 

Sizes

This sofa is generally big and I would say it fits perfectly in big rooms like a tv room or a reading room in your home. If you have a big hall room in your house that you may just want to use for relaxing then this sofa is definitely for it. Or a tea room for your guests. 

This sofa would work perfectly because of its spacious attribute. So if you have a small hoe or you want to fill up a small room, this sofa is too big in terms of size and aesthetic to place in a room. Its look and size would overwhelm everything in that room. 

Check the following measurements and you will understand what I mean. Width: 89 3/4 “, Depth: 44 ⅛ “, Height: 28 3/8 “, Armrest height: 28 3/8 “, Seat width: 74 3/4 “,Seat depth: 38 1/4 “,Seat height: 18 1/8 “

Feel

After such a sight, how would you think this sofa would disappoint when it comes to its comfort. This sofa is not only comfortable when it comes to sitting and lying down. But the smooth velvet feel on your skin would be one to die for. Trust me when I say that there is definitely more than just looks when it comes to this sofa. 

You will find that this sofa will follow through with your body no matter which position or posture you decide to take. The cushions made with high resilience foam will not give in easily so don’t worry about the sofa losing its shape after you sit on it.

Of course, like anything you buy, it needs time to break so the first days the sofa may tend to be a bit stiff, but after about a week it will definitely change. 

Durability

Well, when it comes to durability I have to say that you may find some marks that may appear on the velvet usually disappear in time. With your hand, you can gently stroke in the direction of the pile or use a clothes brush. You can also use the vacuum cleaner with the soft nozzle. 

The felt pads underneath protect the surface below against scratches. This sofa comes with a 25-year limited warranty. So I guess you know what that means. It will definitely last you a long time.

The velvet cover that I have come to love has the ability to resist abrasion and has been tested to handle 35,000 cycles. 15,000 cycles or more is suitable for furniture used every day at home. Over 30,000 cycles mean a good ability to resist abrasion.

Price

Going for $1 699, this sofa could be a life-changer for you. From everything I have seen about this sofa, I would love to say that this sofa is defined as worth your money. Of course, if you are on a tight budget it isn’t a do or die case. However, I believe that saving up for such a sofa would be a great idea. 

Verdict

All in all, I would say that this sofa is a great idea if you plan on extending the furniture in your home. This sofa has proven to be that one sofa that will change so many things in your home.

The Velvet look, the classic feel, what else could you possibly want in your home. Though pricey I think it has proven to be worth such a price. 

I mean with a 25-year limited warranty I think this sofa will do more good than harm any day in your home. 

Ikea Balkarp Sleeper Sofa

Sleeper sofas have become a common feature in homes lately. Mostly because of their double functionality at the price of one functionality. Sleeper sofas are now more practical than a regular sofa because they really can save you from a lot of hassle when you decide to have guests over. 

ikea balkarp sleeper sofa

Today we are looking at the Ikea Balkarp sleeper sofa. It’s known to be Ikea’s cheapest sofa after the Solsta and I’m guessing that really doesn’t give it a good impression at all. However, there is always light at the end of the tunnel so buckle up and let me tell you what I figured about this extremely affordable Ikea sleeper. 

So there is basically not much to say about this sofa. It is more of a futon that comes with an adjustable back so you can decide whether you want to sit up straight, lie down, or actually sleep. It comes with a simple design in which it looks like any regular futon. 

The only difference is that it is from Ikea. Coming to you in Knisa black I think this sleeper would make the perfect addition to a start-up apartment or a studio apartment in the case that you have friends over and you may actually need a second bed. Besides all that it easily converts to a bed so there won’t be much of a hassle there. 

Pros

  • The sofa can easily convert to a bed
  • Is comfortable and safe to sleep on
  • Is easy to clean and maintain

Cons

  • The sofa looks like a regular futon with no distinctive features 

https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/balkarp-sleeper-sofa-knisa-black-00376932/

Aesthetics

Well as I said before, there is really not much to say about this sofa because it is a regular futon and the only distinctive feature is that it is from amazon.

Anyways, the black color helps it to fit into any style in terms of interior decor. So whether you are going for the contemporary look or the classic look this futon will still fit the part quite well. 

Just by looking at it, this futon has one padding which may seem a bit uncomfortable. Also, the legs are not slanted to allow for it to stand at a directive angle and support all bodily weight without breaking down.

You will find that this sleeper will work well in almost any room you decide to put it in and almost any way you decide to accent it will definitely work. 

Sizes

As a futon, you cannot imagine it to be a big sofa or anything. This futon is the perfect size for start-up apartments and will definitely fit in any room and in any space.

So if you are looking for something you could probably use in a small apartment either as an actual bed and sofa or just as extra bedding and seating in your home then I believe we have found it. 

The following are it’s measurements in case you would want to make sure. Width: 67 “, Depth: 33 “, Height: 32 “, Seat width: 67 “, Seat depth: 18 “, Seat height: 15 “, Bed width: 39 “, Bed length: 67 “. 

So as you can see from these measurements this futon can fit into any room, although as it does convert and fold out to make a bed it would be best if you also counted for allowance in the case that it may be uncomfortable in a room once you fold it out. 

Feel

As a sleeper sofa that easily converts to a bed, you would definitely be wondering what it feels like to lay on such a futon from Ikea. Well for once the price does somehow determine the comfort.

This Balkarp sleeper has thin padding which would be comfortable at first sit however if you continuously sit on it the padding may start to lose shape. 

Also sleeping on it as a bed for long hours may not be as comfortable as you think it would be. Given that already when sitting it is not as welcoming as you would think.

However, like extra bedding in your home for a guest, I think this futon would be okay for a one night rest not as a daily dose because I am certain you will wake up with aches all over. 

Durability

Besides, it’s slight lack of comfort this futon may not be one of Ikea’s strongest sets. It’s made from 100 % polyester which we all love and adore when it comes to the feel on our skins. 

The back seat as it stands as a futon is polyurethane foam 1.5 lb/cu.ft., Polyester wadding, Non-woven polypropylene, Particleboard, Plywood, Solid pine. 

The Legs are Steel and have Epoxy/polyester powder coating. It also has galvanised steel to hold it together. However continuous use day and night may result in it lasting a tad bit less than expected. The covers fade with time which is very much unlike other Ikea products. 

Price

Going for $129, I would say this futon could have cost a tad bit less but it is still a good price. I mean it also comes in Vissle grey, the same product just a different color.

However, at least there is a change in color. I feel that if this futon were to cost more, I would not recommend it. Already known as the second cheapest Ikea sofa, I believe it is at the position for a reason

Verdict

All in all, I would say if you are hoping to buy an actual sofa that you can use in your home day and night as extra bedding or seating. I would not recommend this sofa.

However, if you are on a tight budget and you just need something to get you by for a while as you save up for something else then yes I think this futon could be a lifesaver and your lighthouse in such a case. 

Although I wasn’t as impressed by this futon, it still does deserve props on its practicality and functionality. So to some extent, I’d say give it a try.

IKEA Sandbacken Sofa Review

IKEA Sandbacken Sofa Review

Here we have a sofa bed that was designed to bring maximum comfort to you whether you are sitting or sleeping. This sleeper sofa has soft back cushions and a resilient seat with elastic foam that allows you to both sit and sleep comfortably. 

The best part is that when it is bedtime, it quickly converts from sofa to comfy bed and you can finally dream on and let go of the tension and stress of the day. You find that when you get this sofa you get to sit comfortably thanks to the resilient foam and springy seat. Unlike other sofas, it doesn’t easily give in when you sit on it.

 At first, you will feel a firm setting that will obviously need a few bounces to break in. Once that part is done the sofa is yours to overuse and abuse. I say overuse and abuse because this sofa is capable of retaining its shape the moment you stand up. 

In the long run, the sofa is less likely to lose its shape even after the heaviest is usage. It also comes with an ottoman which can use as an extra seat or as a comfortable extension of the sofa.

https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/sandbacken-sleeper-sectional-3-seat-lofallet-beige-s89217906/

Aesthetics

When it comes to looks this sofa may have a bit of an odd design. The frill it has gives one that feeling as if it is a sofa with bangs. It may look good but you still don’t know how to take it. All in all, it is a beautiful sofa that will add a flair of life to your home. 

The fact that it is a sleeper sofa definitely added points for it on my end. It is a sofa and a bed at the same time and the best part is that now you don’t have to give out your bed when guests come over. The ottoman is a nice touch because it allows you to take a simple nap in the case that you actually don’t want to sleep. 

If you want to place the ottoman on the right or left side, or detach it from the sofa and use it on its own all that is possible. The ottoman has an extra storage space under the seat for blankets or other things that you want close at hand.

Sizes

When it comes to size, it is very important to note that this sofa is designed for medium-sized rooms going up. It could probably fit in your room but a problem comes that it needs allowance and after all that, it may crowd up the room leaving a very unsettling feel. 

So as a sofa bed obviously you know that at some point the sofa has to stretch out and become a bed and if your room isn’t as big enough that may turn out to be a big flop.

So to clear up on those problems here are the measurements for this sofa; Width: 83 1/2 “,  Height: 27 1/8 “, Min. depth: 30 3/4 “, Max. depth: 58 5/8 “, Seat depth: 27 1/2 “, Seat height: 13 “, Bed width: 55 1/8 “, Bed length: 78 3/4 “. So from those, I am certain you can match up and see the way to go. 

Feel

When it comes to comfort I have to say this sofa definitely takes the medal. Let’s start off with the general look of the sofa. It has these armrests. The height of the armrests is pretty good but they are quite lean and non-existent, so you cannot have a person sit on it during a family get-together nor can you rest your head on it comfortably for a 5-minute power-nap even. 

You will find that the arms are too lean to fully support your head so that will make them a tad bit uncomfortable and could probably cause some neck problems when you wake up. The mattress has high resilient foam that makes it quite firm.

The best part is as you rest or sleep this sofa’s mattress is going to follow up on your body and support every contour and angle so no aches and stiff necks when you wake up. 

Durability

Like all Ikea products, this comes with a ten-year warranty. The materials used in its construction are generally the best out there. The cover is strong and even though it is not waterproof or stain resistant it will not fail you no matter how many washes you decide to take on it. 

The cover has a lightfastness level of 5 (the ability to resist color fading) on a scale of 1 to 8. This cover has the ability to resist abrasion and has been tested to handle 25,000 cycles.

A cover that withstands 15,000 cycles or more is suitable for furniture that should withstand everyday use in the home. According to industry standards, a lightfastness level of 4 or higher is suitable for home use.

Price

Going for $429 I would say that this is a good deal for a sofa. Given that it is a sofa and a bed at the same time you could probably save off for a while on getting a bed either for you or for the guest bedroom. It’s a comfortable sofa for sitting and sleeping and for such a price I would say that it is a very good deal. 

Verdict

Well, final thoughts are always the hardest. I think this sofa comes at a fair price given the services it is guaranteed to offer plus the durability that comes along. Getting a sofa is generally a risky thing to do because you never truly know if it is the one for you.

However, I do recommend this sofa if you are looking for a start-up sofa. I mean it is a sofa and a bed at the same time. You can save up for more later on and get yourself and full-on bed.

Ikea Norsborg Sofa

The Norsborg series has certainly become an obsession recently. Replacing the Karlstad what we have here is a sofa that has managed to size and shape to fit your space, and create a favourite spot for each family member. It comes with handy pockets on the side that keep remote controls from getting lost under pillows and throws. 

Ikea Norsborg Sofa

Okay, that’s not the only thing those pockets are for but at least now you have an idea of what to use them for. So what we are looking at here is a 3-seat sofa that comes with chaise longue. Sort of like an extra seat, mini table type of thing. Big or small, colourful or neutral this sofa will still serve its purpose in your home. 

I figured that this sofa comes in many shapes, styles and sizes so that you can easily find the one that suits you and your family best or maybe you and your pet best. What you are getting from this sofa is a  soft and comfortable sofa filled with high resilience foam that supports your body and quickly regains its shape when you stand up. 

The armrests are higher making the sofa extra comfortable to curl up in the corner of the sofa. Imagine a winter night on this sofa next to the fireplace. What could you possibly need? The chaise lounge is versatile that means apart from it being multi-functional you can also place the chaise longue section to the left or right of the sofa, and switch whenever you like.

Pros

  • The sofa comes as modular sectional which you can rearrange 
  • It is a very comfortable sofa
  • It is easy to clean and maintain 

Cons

  • The sofa is easily stained and is not resistant to sharp objects 

https://www.ikea.com/au/en/p/norsborg-3-seat-sofa-with-chaise-longue-finnsta-finnsta-birch-dark-grey-birch-s59124980/

Aesthetics

Well, the Norsborg series does have a talent when it comes to style. It generally comes in 5 colours that is  Edum Dark Blue, Edum Light Blue, Finsta Dark Grey, Finsta Red, and Finsta White. Pretty generic colours that can blend in with almost every style. From top to toe this sofa oozes a great sense of style which normally cuts across all design lines that you know. 

However, because of the shades in color you may have a hard time trying to pull off a vintage look. The legs come in a cylindrical shape and manner. The Norsborg sofa offers these modern-looking rounded wooden legs as well as the grey cylindrical ones.

This makes it the perfect fit if you are looking for a sofa that can fit in a modern home. So if you are looking for a sofa that can cut across so many designer lines then this sofa is definitely the one you have been looking for. 

Sizes

When it comes to size this sofa cannot classify as small at the same time we can classify it as big. It’s just one of those middle and medium-sized sofas that you can put in a normal sized living room and get a comfortable look. It comes with a deep sitting which as a short person you might find very uncomfortable. 

However, this sofa is generally a good space cozying up on a winter night. Looking at the following measurements I think you will have an idea of what I mean.

The sofa comes as follows; Width: 231 cm, Height: 85 cm, Min. depth: 88 cm, Max. depth: 157 cm, Seat depth, chaise longue: 129 cm, Free height under furniture: 18 cm, Seat depth: 60 cm, Seat height: 43 cm, if you have a medium to large room I think this sofa would work pretty well for you. 

However, if you have a small room, don’t lose heart, the good thing is that you can rearrange the chaise lounge to different positions so you can make it work. 

Feel

Comfort is one of the first things we look forward to when it comes to a sofa. I have to say that this sofa managed to cut across all those lines and you will be pleased to know that it will serve well in that area. The sofa. 

The armrests are high meaning you can easily lean back and relax with your whole back and arms supported. The cushion has high resilience foam which makes them quite firm and best believe that you don’t have to worry about that sinking feeling that most sofas bring. 

Durability

However just to ease your mind I am going to tell you a bit about this sofa’s construction and hopefully, you’ll understand why I am telling you to not worry about it at all.

The legs are made of solid wood and extra high so that you can easily vacuum under the sofa. The cover is easy to keep clean as it is removable and can be machine washed. All the cotton in these products comes from more sustainable sources. 

This means that the cotton is either recycled or grown with less water, fewer fertilisers, and fewer pesticides while increasing profit margins for the farmers. Which means that it will definitely last longer. Frame for the armrest is made from Fibreboard, Solid wood, Polyurethane foam 30 kg/cu.m., Particleboard With the legs being made from solid birch, tinted clear and acrylic lacquer. 

Price

Coming to you with a ten-year warranty I really don’t think that durability should be one of your worries when it comes to this sofa. Coming at a price of $1 039 this sofa definitely deserves to be termed as expensive. It is a good sofa and it will definitely provide more than just comfort in your home.

Verdict

What I love most about this sofa is that nothing about it is exaggerated. What you see is what you get and clearly just by looking at it, you can tell the amount of comfort it will give you.

It has a fluffy look but once you sit on it it doesn’t give in that easily. With plywood and solid wood, this sofa is definitely going to grant you the comfort you need. 

However, when it comes to it’s pricing it is a bit too high for a three-seat sectional. I do recommend it though, it got my favor from its durability to its aesthetics, I have to say I was really impressed by its outlook.

Just by looking at it, you can tell that it will definitely be worth anything and everything you could ever need or what. 

Now the best part about this sofa is that it can be volatile in style depending on the color you use. Take it in brown for instance it would work well with transitional decors and traditional lines as well. With white, it would fit perfectly with that holiday style or a minimalistic decor. 

However it comes in only four colors, we have black which would be perfect for a modern and contemporary home. Then we also have hazel brown that is the best pick if you have a traditional or bohemian style of life. The cream and grey are neutral and can work with almost anything you have in mind. 

Sizes

This is a medium sofa, so you can’t expect it to be too big or too small. It’s just a medium-sized sofa that will work extremely well with small apartments, large spaces. Its size works well if you want to have extra space in your bedroom or in any room as an extra piece. 

So we have the sofa at the following measurements. We have a width of 164 cm followed by a beautiful depth of 89 cm. The height comes at 78cm as it sits quite low. The armrests are at a height of 64cm with a seat width of 140cm and a seat depth of 61cm and a seat height of 44cm. So you see what I mean when I say its a medium-sized sofa. 

Feel

So basically this sofa is a firm and comfortable piece that will be perfect for you after a long day at work and you just want to relax and chill and probably reflect on your day. So this 2-seat sofa is made with 100% polyester with the back and seat frame having been made from plywood, particleboard, fibre wood, and solid wood just to add that nail in its strength. 

What makes this sofa a heavy-duty stylish sofa is the materials used. All-natural and all genuine to make this genuinely comfortable sofa. The armrest frame had plywood and polyurethane foam plus solid wood the rest of the sofa is mostly polyester fibre to add that perfect sense of comfort and coziness. There is something about it that reminds us of the Ikea Knislinge Sofa.

Durability

This sofa comes with a  cover that will not fade or lose its color in any way. The way it’s expressed is as follows. So this sofa’s covers come with a lightfastness level of 5-6 on a scale of 1 to 8. That being the sofa’s ability to resist abrasion. So you get it now right? 

According to industry standards, a lightfastness level of 4 or higher is suitable for home use. That’s your regular table cloth or sofa cover and this is no ordinary sofa cover. This cover’s ability to resist abrasion has been tested to handle 50,000 cycles. 

15,000 cycles or more is suitable for furniture used every day at home. Over 30,000 cycles mean a good ability to resist abrasion.

So you know how durable it is now right?

Price

Going for a lump sum price of 595 I mean yes the price looks a bit high but it is definitely worth it because what the sofa has to offer you cannot be put on a price tag. So you may be thinking to yourself, should I really buy the sofa at such a price? 

And trust me when I tell you that when you get this sofa you will understand that the price is even low. So to me, I think the sofa is definitely worth it and given the option, I would buy it without a second thought.

All modules with this sofa can be used freestanding or together to create a sofa combination in any size that suits you perfectly. So even if your space is limited you can definitely find a way to make things work for you. 

Vallentuna retains its comfort for a long time with generous seating and pocket springs that follow your body. This combination includes 3 seat modules with storage that allow you to quickly clear away your things but still have them close at hand.

With the Vallentuna sofa series, they wanted to create a fully flexible furniture series that adapts to all kinds of living situations, homes, and needs. You will find that with this sofa more people than ever before are living in cities, often in smaller spaces, while modern technology and this has changed the way most people use their homes. 

The idea used in designing this sofa was to make a sofa out of modules so that you create your own personal solution for all seating, sleeping and storage needs. A creative and understanding sofa, full of democratic design which is exactly what any home definitely needs. 

This sofa comes to you in a beige blend with the white. Perfect for minimalist homes and contemporary decors that can sometimes have modern touches. So if you are looking to spice up your home this is definitely the sofa for the job.

Sizes

This is a big sofa. If you have a small space I wouldn’t normally recommend such a sofa. However thanks to a few modern designing tactics you can actually set the sofa’s modules in a way such that they can fit into that room the way you want them. 

However looking at the overall size of the sofa as a whole you will find the sofa depth at Depth: 36 5/8 ” (93 cm), Height: 33 1/8 ” (84 cm) and the Width of the right section: 104 3/4 ” (266 cm) and the Width of the left section: 76 ” (193 cm). The seat depth is 31 1/2 ” (80 cm). This giving you the complete sofa. 

Feel

Well, the best way to describe the feel of this sofa would be to say it is a firm piece. Unlike fluffy sofas, you don’t sink in when you sit. With this particular sofa, you can feel it blends in with the curves of your body. 

The best part is when you stand up you won’t find a depression because with high resilience foam and cold foam this sofa is made to return to its natural stance as soon as the weight has been lifted. 

The polyester and cotton/linen material used is very soft even on sensitive skin. Though I won’t promise that if you wake up after a long nap you won’t have some markings on your skin. 

Durability

With this Vallentuna sofa, the seating is comfortable and easy to use and care for. The generous seats come with pocket springs that follow your body to provide lasting comfort. The covers come in durable, dirt-repellent material so if there’s an accident, all you need to do is remove and machine wash. 

The sleeper section converts quickly into a bed for one and if you want to make it even easier to stay organized at home. The cover is easy to keep clean since it is removable and machine washable. Coming to you with a 10-year limited warranty this sofa is definitely worth a lot of things. 

This sofa’s cover has the ability to resist abrasion and has been tested to handle 20,000 cycles. A cover that withstands 15,000 cycles or more is suitable for furniture that should withstand everyday use in the home.

Price

After all this, we come to the most important part. Is this sofa the one you want and need? Well depending on your budget really but this sofa is great. It’s a set in one really. Imagine buying one sofa that you can turn to a full set. 

I mean it a big sofa that has been designed to fit into any room, you just have to arrange it in the proper manner and all will be well. So yes I believe this is actually one of the best sofas out there. Coming to you at a price of $1,635.00 this Modular corner sofa, 3-seat, with storage in Orrsta light gray is definitely worth the price. A little pricey yes. But worth it. 

Verdict
